15. I feel like I have been in an abusive relationship with my govt
Right after Resident Bush took office, I was listening to him speak on my radio at night and as
I listened to his tone, it just popped into my head that I was in an abusive relationship
with my government. I told a lot of friends that and they said, yeah, that is exactly what it feels like. And of course over the years Repugs keep telling Democrats, that we need to "apologize" for whatever whiny complaint they have. I am sick of them trying to belittle us like spoiled brats. So I am very happy to see you write:

Obama and his exemplary campaign aren't the battered spouse. They aren't going to shrink from complaining about illegal activities because they don't want to be called whiners, wimps, or sore losers.

Thank goodness for Sen. Obama and Sen. Biden.
